* The ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Psirens" features the crew chasing the stolen Red Dwarf in the much smaller Starbug. They have an opportunity to catch it because it's had to make a detour around an asteroid field, which Starbug can go through. Even then they need the Cat, with his fast reflexes, as pilot to get safely through.

* VideoGame/{{Tyrian}} has them in the appropriately titled asteroids 1 and asteroids 2. As TwoDSpace is in full effect here you sometimes need to blast your way though rather than just go around them, which can be tricky when you have weak weapons and have a chunk of rock ten times your size heading your way.

Launchpad, [[AndYouThoughtItWasaGame the only person aware that a field of asteroids is real and deadly]], has an absolutely terrifying time trying to keep the ''Phoenix'' from running into them. Ultimately, he brings it "right through without a scratch", but the toll the experience took on him is clear as he staggers upstairs to inform the others.

** In the first ''VideoGame/RebelAssault'' game, the player (Rookie One) is chased through an asteroid field, similar to the scene in ''The Empire Strikes Back''. Towards the end of the run, a torus-shaped (doughnut) asteroid appears. GenreSavvy players know that, since this is ''Franchise/StarWars'', [[spoiler: fly directly ''through'' the center of the asteroid. The pursuing TIE fighters will be clipped by the asteroid as it spins past the point where you get through.]]

** [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda''. The various asteroid belts found throughout the Heleus Cluster are much thicker than a real asteroid belt should be, but it is heavily implied that they are the debris left behind by Earth-sized or larger planets that were destroyed by [[NegativeSpaceWedgie the Scourge]].
